So, no rugby. What's a man to do? Train, that's what. Train and try to emulate what I might do in a game. So, it was either to be higher reps and lower weights in an effort to get a good old sweat on. Or it was going to be shouting a load of rubbish, occasionally headbutting things and standing on people who were simply in my way.
Thankfully, I chose the former as I'm not sure the 18st powerlifter would have taken kindly to being stomped on and I think the 11st skinny six-pack boys would have cried if I'd headbutted them.
So, I did the following...
Squat: 1 x 10 @ 60kg, 4 x 10 @ 80kg
Barbell press: 1 x 10 @ 30kg, 4 x 10 @ 40kg
Deadlift: 1 x 6 @ 60kg, 4 x 6 @ 80kg
Clean and press: 1 x 10 @ 30kg, 4 x 10 @ 40kg
Bench press: 1 x 10 @ 60kg, 4 x 10 @ 70kg
Dumbbell curl: 1 x 10 @ 17.5kg, 4 x 10 @ 20kg
I have to say that I really enjoyed this session and it was something a little different to my normal sessions. I trained well and kept the intensity up. On Sunday, I did ache - particularly on my inner thighs and my trapezius.
